Last night my sister and I had the please of being apart of a group that got to meet the cast of the new off Broadway play"By the Way, Meet Vera Stark" by Lynn Nottage.
The play is a seventy-year journey into the life of Vera Stark, a headstrong African-American maid and budding actress, and her tangled relationship with her boss, a white Hollywood star desperately grasping to hold onto her career. When both land roles in the same Southern epic, the story behind the cameras leaves Vera with a controversial legacy scholars will debate for years to come. Sanaa Lathan plays the role as Vera Stark.
So if your interested or you just want to see Sanaa, the play will be at the Second Stage Theater in NYC between April and May. From what I've see it looks good.
